California Quinoa Salad

Yesterday at work, I wandered into the staff kitchen to find several people surrounding this California Quinoa Salad. They said it was the best salad ever. Of course, I had some, and yes, it is truly delicious. My friend Kristi made it. It has so much flavor and perfect for a weekday lunch. 

Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wah’) is a superfood, which is a complete protein. It has the perfect ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats and is one of the best sources of protein you can get from a plant source. It is gluten-free and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids. ​
